    Here we go again - DIY chiller/trunk line

    There's actually a question at the bottom if you want to skip the long version... We're moved into the new house, and it's time to get going on a draught system. The kegerator is in the basement, almost exactly under the kitchen sink upstairs. The other day, a buddy and I were standing in...

    Question for the industrial control guys - Pneumatic Valves

    Question: I've got a few Festo pneumatic valve blocks removed from an industrial machine. I've been considering pneumatic pumps for the brew rig, and was wondering how these are controlled? They appear to have an Allen-Bradley M12 connector. My theory is that I can move beer in the process...

    Old beer, new yeast

    Question: I have an imperial stout that was neglected for 2 years. (I know) I don't have an FG for it, as it was the last beer I brewed before taking a couple years off. After re-discovering an almost full corny of the stuff, I put it back in the cooler (It was on gas the whole time it sat)...

    Got a free chiller. Now what?

    Scored a free DBM-250 chiller last night! The reservoir apparently has a really slow leak. I'm told it's a "Put a paper towel under it" type thing. The reservoir is plastic with a titanium coil inside. So it shouldn't be hard at all to fix. In its past life it was used in a hydroponic...

    More Electrical Stuff - Allen-Bradley This Time Around

    This thread will get updated. A lot... It wouldn't let me update the other thread, so here's a new one :drunk: Allen-Bradley Stuff: All used, and probably dirty. All should clean up very well (Used on a paint line, but the un-cured paint comes off with a fingernail) The nicest ones will go...

    Sometimes I hate my job... Sometimes, it just freakin rawks!

    So I'm at one of our factories that closed down, removing all if the IT assets - Servers, network switches, wireless gear - And I'm looking at the paint line, stripped of everything the maintenance guys wanted to salvage. And what's left?!? I'm guessing somewhere around 500' if 1/2" stainless...

    Beer feedback in (around) DesMoines?

    Not to pimp on another thread, but... All of my lighter brews have a funny taste I can't describe. They aren't bad by any means, but I've never tasted it in other friends' homebrew, or the sample beer I've had at Beer Crazy. I'd love to know how it would be properly described so I can fix...

    Anyone used the eBay Amp meters?

    I want to install ammeters in my control panel for the main, and each heating element, so I can control the system if I'm under a power restriction. It'll draw a full 50 amps if I let both 5500 watt elements go to 100%. Has anyone looked at or used these? They are certainly cheap enough...
